Product Description

Product Description

History brackets Jan & Dean with friends the Beach Boys as stereotypical young Californians - all-American surfers with bikini-clad girls on their arm. Yet they had a history before they fell in with the Wilson brothers. This 2CD compilation looks at these early years, including all six sides of the rare Jan and Arnie singles plus a Jan Berry solo track, to give the fullest possible background to a classic pop partnership.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sixties surf music 15 Aug 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Jan Berry and Dean Torrence made music that was very similar in many ways to the early Beach Boys music. Actually Jan often collaborated with Brian Wilson on songwriting - Surf city, Drag city, Dead man's curve and Ride the wild surf being among the songs they wrote together. Further evidence of their close ties is provided here by the inclusion of several covers of Beach Boys classics. Although not included here, Barbara Ann (originally released on the Beach Boys Party album) features one member of Jan and Dean as lead singer - I've seen different reference source naming Jan or Dean so I can't say which one.
Jan and Dean's music was about more than just surfing as some of their other recordings (Linda, Heart and soul, a cover of Norwegian wood) but if you don't enjoy surf music, you won't find much to get excited about here. The duo's career ended abrubtly when Jan nearly died in a horrific accident. He recovered sufficiently to be able to record again in the seventies but was unable to recapture past glories. Meanwhile, Dean quit music and established a successful career in graphics design, though Jan and Dean re-united to provide the support act for the 1978 Beach Boys tour.
If you enjoy the early music of the Beach Boys, you'll probably enjoy this too, especially as Brian Wilson contributed so much tothese recordings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jan and Dean's greatest. 22 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
At last a Jan and Dean album with the ORIGINAL recordings, last one I bought had a terrible re-recorded version of "The little old lady from Pasadena" on it, this compilation is great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Early singles 19 May 2014
By Rog
Format:Audio CD
Most of the reviews here seem to be of another album. This album contains recordings from 1958 to 1962. Basically it consists of the duo's first sixteen singles (oddly omitting one of the B-sides, "Judy", but does include the three earlier singles by Jan & Arnie and the A-side of a Jan Berry 1960 solo single . It's great stuff but it does pre-date their surf and car hits.
